Chris Nicholson Salon and Spa combines the latest in hair services and skincare techniques with talented, experienced stylists. Masters of head-garden cultivation provide customers with a comprehensive consultation before waging war on misplaced follicles with a women’s cut ($40–$55), men’s cut ($24–$35), or kid’s cut (12 and under, $20–$30). Clients concerned about cranial coloring can mitigate fears with a one-step color ($50–$75) or a new set of highlights ($75 and up). After a shampoo and blow-dry ($25–$30), customers can wander over to the skin section, where a stylist will perform a skin analysis and offer a treatment recommendation such as a 75-minute signature spa facial ($95) or a 30-minute natural skin peel ($50). All skin treatments include neck, shoulder, face, and hand massages, but for those who require further manipulation, massage therapy is available in 30-minute ($50), 60-minute ($75), and 90-minute ($100) increments.
Ojas customizes its Body in Bliss massage session to the needs of each individual client in order to drain the body's tree trunk of its stress sap. The massage technician will start by speaking with you about your aches, pains, and anxiety dreams and will then use that knowledge to set his or her hand phasers to "relax." From there, simply lie still and bliss out as your tensions are massaged, stroked, kneaded, and occasionally garotted away. Body in Bliss incorporates a serenity-enhancing blend of essential oils that massage the nose as much as the body and uses warm stones to stimulate circulation and draw deep-set tension out of the body's muscles, joints, and field of glandmines. You'll leave Ojas's premises with your muscular fibers singing as harmoniously as a barbershop quartet, instead of screeching like the lead singer in a Norwegian death-metal barbershop quartet.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I am a certified corrective-exercise specialist as well as a licensed massage therapist. I use the best of both worlds to reach the goals we set for our sessions whether that be to decrease pain, move easier, or even relax.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I love massage therapy! A close second is personal training. Having my own office allows me to take the time with each of my clients before and after sessions to educate them on a healthy lifestyle.
What do you love most about your job?
Having a client get off my table and telling me how great they feel. Sometimes it's within minutes, days, sessions, ect... That's the moment I look forward to most. There's no greater feeling than helping someone with what you love.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
On a number of occasions I've had clients tell me they see better results with me than with PT or chiropractors. It feels good to be mentioned among those credible practitioners.
Dr. Melodie J. Mitchell-Black is something of an over achiever. A lifelong athlete, she translated her time dominating basketball courts and track fields into a career as an athletic trainer. While playing ball at Atlanta Metropolitan College, Dr. Mitchell-Black earned an associate degree in physical therapy. She then added degrees in chiropractic and biology, and finally had enough mortar boards to tile her own basketball court.
While continuing to work with collegiate basketball teams?and serve as their chiropractor?Melodie got involved with professional and collegiate football teams, as well.
In 2012 and 2013 she competed in the FitSciences Fitness Championships, where she was a top finisher in the FitMom division.
Dr. Mitchell-Black's treatments at MJ Mitchell Wellness speak to this background. Most services fall into chiropractic, massage, and sports medicine treatments. She also specializes in fitness and pediatric care. With a wealth of professional, personal, and educational experience informing her efforts, Dr. Mitchell-Black helps athletes and non-athletes alike feel their absolute best.
